People with tripped KNOX can of course use this as well, however it won't untrip their devices, duh.


The cheers

First of all big cheers for Pinkie Pie (person who discovered the Linux kernel vulnerability that makes rooting without tripping KNOX possible), geohot (person that used the vulnerability to make a rooting app), chainfire (developer of SuperSU), rovo89 and Tungstwenty (developers of Xposed). Go and donate to these guys if you can!


The what

This post will tell you how to upgrade your P605 to 4.4.2, if you haven't already. And how to install SuperSU and Xposed all the while keeping your KNOX counter at 0x0, CURRENT BINARY: Samsung Official and SYSTEM STATUS: Official!

Note: The versions in this text are just for reference - telling you what versions already worked. New ones will surely also work, so you should usually download the newest available.


The how

Firmware
Root
SuperSU
  • Version 1.99.rc5 from http://download.chainfire.eu/448/SuperSU/
  • Extract Superuser.apk (in 'common') from the zip, install and run
  • Answer yes to the Disable KNOX prompt (don't worry, KNOX will not be tripped)

Xposed

The victory

Congrats! Now you should be on a rooted, SuperSUed, Xposed KitKat with warranty left intact! However before sending it to Samsung, e.g., for repairs, you should flash your original firmware, of course.
Guess, any kind of firmware flash will trip KNox to 0x1. To save warranty just unroot with SuperSU and unistall it and Xposed installer.

Just follow this (from OP) :

Root

From http://towelroot.com
No special instructions (it's a 1-click root)


SuperSU

Version 1.99.rc5 from http://download.chainfire.eu/448/SuperSU/
Extract Superuser.apk (in 'common') from the zip, install and run
Answer yes to the Disable KNOX prompt (don't worry, KNOX will not be tripped)


Xposed

From http://repo.xposed.info/module/de.ro...osed.installer (version 2.6.1)
No special instructions

Thank you for that, it seems I followed exactly the instruction and I'm stuck at Disabling KNOX ... it's been taking a long time..
